A vintage version of the Warriors gave Kerr’s men their 36th win of the season. With Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson recovering the Splash Brothers nickname and with a huge third quarter as a foundation, San Francisco prevailed over the Timberwolves 124-115, adding their fourth consecutive victory. After a few difficult weeks, it seems that they are picking up their winning rhythm again, although the cruising speed that the Suns have imposed will make it difficult for them to regain the leadership of the competition.
One of the causes of the complicated moment that Golden State has gone through was the bad moment of Curry, who was having more problems than usual to score his shots, something that the point guard has put an end to, we will see if permanently or not, this morning. Steph finished the match with 29 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals, and signed a 6/10 in triples which is his best outside success figure in a long time. Without going any further, the point guard has not exceeded 50% success in triples since December 23, and the last time he scored 6 shots from the perimeter he needed 16 attempts to do so.
Klay Thompson also boasted success, who had his best night since his return to reach 23 points. The shooting guard scored 5 triples, in his case in 9 attempts, and once again formed a great exterior pairing with Curry, reminding the duo that brought so much joy to the franchise at the time and promises to do the same this year.
“Playing with Klay is much easier, because he is a great scorer who demands a lot of attention from the opposing defense,” Steph acknowledged. “The hardest thing sometimes is to try to play in a simple way, because it is tempting to try to do something special in each possession, and if you get into that dynamic, problems can come. I can’t say we don’t have a tendency to do it from time to time.
However, it was not only the Splash Brothers who guided theirs, as both Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole finished with 19 points each. Between all of them, they provided points to some Warriors who broke the match with a 38-20 run in the third quarter, when they turned around a game that they were losing at halftime and in which they gained an advantage that they no longer they would let escape despite the attempts of the Timberwolves.
These were commanded by Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, who added 31 and 27 points respectively to try to keep Finch’s men alive until the end. This time, however, they did not find the support of D’Angelo Russell, who finished with 8 points in a new reunion with Golden State that came precisely the night that Wiggins, the player for whom he was transferred, was announced as the starter. for the All-Star Game.
